Grind-hardening process is a complex hybrid process integrating heat treatment process with high material rate grinding. The modelling of the process thus is quite complex and a number of aspects need to be considered. The present chapter presents a holistic model able to predict the grinding forces, temperature distribution, metallurgical changes, surface hardness and residual stresses. The model is composed of a number of sub-models that are also verified experimentally.
